problems that get thrust upon them as a consequence of diminished tax bases and the consequence of housing, the significant portion of the public and their states that are in most need. we're committed to having a third phase of the so-called big deal on the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with th
the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. whenever there's a major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly hartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, which congress unfortunately, allowed to expire. yesterday, i was personally very proud to be in the white house as president obama and vice president biden unveiled a strong, comprehensive package of legislative and regulatory reforms needed to response to th
. >> not the last question. >> i'm sorry, francine. [inaudible] >> everything you run out of tax reform process has been out with a has to measure to make them maybe not impossible, but much less likely to tax reform goes forward this year. is that basically what you believe? if you could say a word about why tax reform should go forward. what do you see as the upside of that? >> i'm not saying that. what i'm saying is they think we took seems that do not package they have some ramifications tax reform. but i am not saying that we shouldn't sit down and talk about how we look at our tax structure and how we reform it. it's a fact that by what we thought it, but it isn't anything close to the whole package. i think what it does is to force people to be more concrete about what they mean when they took about tax reform. let me just give you an example. some of the provisions that we have been training and retraining, some of them are in appropriation and some of them are in the tax structure. i think we can take a hard look at all of our training programs. some of them aren't about to taxation. i thi
is a tax credit that was part of the economic stimulus originally, he sought $500 and i think ultimately, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking a
about now closing more loopholes and that means higher taxes. we don't know on who, but he would not specify any specific spending reductions and refusing to negotiate with the house republicans on the issue of the debt ceiling. lou, an interesting couple of months. looking forward to it. >> megyn: all right. thank you, sir. >> thanks, megyn. >> megyn: with the president refuse to go negotiate on that debt ceiling, it's coming and we're going to hit it and there's going to be a real question what we will do. he negotiated the last time and suddenly says he doesn't want to negotiate anymore and the republicans have drawn a line in the sand when it comes to these spending cuts, saying, if we don't see a dollar for dollar spending cut in the amount you want to raise the debt ceiling, there's no deal. what kind of progress can we hope for here? our political panel debates that coming up in our next hour. now to another big debate playing out in washington over the obama administration's efforts to overhaul the nation's gun laws. we heard some of that this morning. here is the preside
and keep going -- it needs to bring millions of people with it. the robin hood tax, the campaign the nurses have -- $350 billion a year from wall street for a minimum tax. you know what one of the legislator said to one of our nurses going to the capitol and talking about the wall street tax? she said, you nurses need to lower your expectations. the nurse looked at her and said, would you like for me to say that to you when i am prepare you for surgery? the true story. i mean, honestly, literally, it is a disgrace -- lower your expectations? i see what is happening out here every day. we're not going to lower our expectations. we're going to fight for a real economy. our economy has been hijacked -- we can talk about all the problems, talk endlessly about what i heard yesterday -- i heard about a woman yesterday. we heard about a real woman yesterday from michigan who actually chose to have her leg amputated because she could not afford the antibiotics in terms of taking care of her leg. she had her leg amputated because of money, because of money, because we do not have a health care syste
virginia and articulated the perspective on increasing taxes but we shouldn't do that. you know what obama said three days after especially when we disagree? he said eric, i1 coming you lost. then about a week later he says i want the folks that got us into this mess to do the whole lot less talking and a lot more listening. you know, you can talk of little bit but i want you on the sidelines while we try to clean this up for you. unbelievable. gone with any notion of unifying the country, of bringing us together. instead, they're came this steady mantra of the attack and vilify the other side. no ideas. it wasn't an idea base. just like his 2008 campaign for president wasn't idea based. was hope and change, glorious pieces with no substance whatsoever to the only substance is he was going to unify us committee the post partisan president. and yet almost immediately, it was conservatives are hostage-takers. they are the enemy. they care only about millionaires and billionaires and not children with autism and down syndrome. now, what was this approach? why did obama and his administration
of the rich. it is the party of lower taxes. but there are a lot of people who are lower down the food chain, the economic chain, also paying lots of taxes relative to their income. and they need help. we need more education work being done in this country. we need a solid immigration policy. we have to look at climate change there are a lot of things that the american people are expecting and the republican party, as they get ready for the next election, really has to focus on some of these issues and not ignore them. everybody wants to talk about who is going to be the candidate you better think first about what's the party actually going to represent? if it's just gonna represent the far right-wing of the political spec trouble, i think the party is in difficulty. i'm aed moderate but i'm still a republican, that's how i was raised. until i voted for mr. obama twice i voted for seven straight republican presidents. >> a couple of other foreign policy matters, what should the force, u.s. force in afghanistan look like after next year? >> i think the president's on track here. we've done by
, hidden taxes will take a painful bite. inside is the story from that conley who friends the argument more so in the washington d.c. area. local residents will be paying uncle sam more in 2013, between the two percent increase in payroll tax and to lesser known provisions buried in the fiscal cliff deal. there is also the issue of the health care tax, which also may hit some individuals. more details from the washington sunday examiner. the question we are focusing on is whether the president will bypass congress to raise the debt ceiling. we are getting your calls in common. buddy on the republican line. caller: good morning. it would not surprise me that he does raise the debt ceiling. the president alone spent over $1 billion last year just to himself. when does it stop? obviously he has never had a checkbook. i get a bill, i pay it. why do they just keep putting money out, putting money out, not take care of what they're doing doing, not realizing what they're doing? host: they give for the call. this from twitter -- the focus on the 14th amendment, section four, basically says that th
both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. whenever there's a major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly heartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, which congress unfortunately, allowed to expire. yesterday, i was personally very proud to be in the white house as president obama and vice president biden unveiled a strong, comprehensive package of legislative and regulatory reforms needed to response to the ongoing gun violence in america's cities a
by delaying decisions, raise taxes, or refusing to tackle the most pressing economic challenges. you deserve better. with the swearing in of a new congress and the inauguration of president obama, this is the opportunity for a fresh start, but because government debt affects all of us, republicans will not simply provide a blank check for uncontrolled spending , a rational borrowing, and constant nickel and dime tax increases. the issues that we face today are not an impossible obstacle. they are merely the challenges of our time. we have the guidance of great leaders of the past that have faced tougher challenges than this with grace and dignity like dr. martin luther king jr., who won said the most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others? it is a good word for all of us , and a clarion call that should ring in our ears on his birthday weekend. regardless of our differences, all had the same dream or the future of our kids and grand kids. i pray that my children will grow up with your children in a nation that enjoys god lessons and freedom -- god's blessings and fre
for the ball and all of this stuff. right after he raised the taxes, i am just barely living. i made $20,000 per year and now that my paycheck is getting cut because he raised taxes, i cannot even afford food. i have two grandchildren and cannot afford to feed them. from 50,000 on down, 60,000 on down, why not tax us? he just tax the people that are higher? host: thank you for the call. let me use this point -- we are not focusing as much on budgets and taxes, but these are tougher economic times and this is something these committees have taken into account? guest: that was the driver behind scaling down from 10 balls to two. george bush in his second inauguration also had 10. that is where the standard was. that has been cut way back. there will be a concert on the national mall with bruce springsteen. there have been efforts not to overspend and there is a willingness to acknowledge that so many americans are having a tough economic times. host: tony, who morning. thank you for calling in. caller: thank you. i want to know, white people started all the money stuff. this president, why
leverage, right? that was something that boehner tried to do with his whole plan "b" during the tax thing. and when he couldn't do that, then suddenly he lost all leverage. so that's the name of the game number one. and then the second part is what david was talking about there, which is they are trying to figure out how to basically move away from the debt limit as a part of this argument, and that's -- it's easier said than done. they know where they should be having this spending argument, and that is with funding the government. whether they can get the rank and file to that place is another story. and that's why the white house's strategy is go ahead and pass something. you've got that whole dollar-for-dollar spending cuts to debt limit, go ahead and give it a shot. see how you come up with it because the white house doesn't believe that boehner can pass a bill that even meets his own standard of dollar for dollar. >> and i would just add, i think the view among top republicans, republican leaders, is that the well is so poisoned by president obama. i mean, this goes beyond, you know
higher taxes for your kids to go to school? why would you sacrifice something for me to get health care? >> why would you believe if i told you i would be with you the next time? developing relations. >> not just legislative, culture. you have to know each other for a republic to work. don't have to love each other but have to feel neighborliness. >> that's a good point. look at congress. there was a time members of congress lived in washington. now, it's a three-day workweek e essenti essentially, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, they're on planes back to their districts, no matter how far away for the four-day weekend. they don't spend that much time together, don't spend that much time in washington like they used to. the old sort of image of the washington dinner party in georgetown, where decisions are made and even where friendships and bonds are created that lead to those decisions, that's kind of out-dated. >> it's the politics. the problem is it's us in the media. if they get together. this goes to mika's point about what she said about the white house and what the president was s
. we do not default. we have 2 1/2 trillion dollars worth of tax revenue coming into the treasury every year. we can use some of that money to pay our interest on our debt. we will meet our obligations on our debt regardless of the debt ceiling. we will not default. that is an absolute, we will not default. the idea that we will if we don't raise the debt creel something an absolute flat out myth. >> gretchen: what else did he say you didn't agree with? >> the use of the expression, dead beat nation, that really is talking down america. the president is encouraging congress, encouraging america to pay its bills using a credit card to pay its bills, using borrowed money to pay its bills. that credit card will never be paid off and the balance on it will never be paid down. that is dead beat behavior and that should be pointed out. by using that expression, the president is talk down america. we stand not as tall in the eyes of the world when the president uses that kind of language. >> gretchen: could it also be he was talking down to republicans because he thinks right now that he has t
taxes, pay their flood insurance, pay their home owners insurance and are now paying rent on top of everything else. they have the money, i'm sure each and every one of them got their christmas bonuses we're sitting here, sitting here trying to do everything ourselves. >> alisyn: they have been waiting a long time and obviously very angry. the house of representatives are set to vote on the 51 billion dollar release bill on tuesday. this is good news on the condition of former president george h.w. bush. last night a spokesman for the 41st president said he could be released from a houston hospital this week, and president bush's son jeb is more optimistic and he says he thinks his father will go home tomorrow. the 88-year-old was admitted for a bronchitis related cough. >> mike: what a night if you're a football fan. if you watched the broncos-ravens game. >> tucker: no. >> mike: it's an instant classic, we'll see it over and over again on espn. under a minute to go, ravens q.b. flacco hits the hail mary kind of pass and i don't know how he got behind the defense, in overtime pe
